The decision was made, however, on Sunday, to have Jericho go over in the bout, and it was reportedly a call made by Vince McMahon.
Wyatt vs Jericho in a Battleground rematch is expected to take place at WWE SummerSlam, and a third match between the two is likely for Night of Champions, before Jericho takes another hiatus from WWE.
Paglino: I know some people didn’t like the decision to have Jericho win at Battleground, but it didn’t bother me at all. Jericho returns to WWE for the sole purpose of putting new talent over, so I know Wyatt will end up getting the better of Jericho in the end.
Jericho has to win a battle or two to make it more impactful when Wyatt ends up winning the “war.”
